OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Democratic Republic of Leckenby is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Arsene Wenger with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 21.404 billion Leckenbyians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Social Welfare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arjen. The average income tax rate is 67%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

A survey of the nation's rivers and children has shown that pesticide levels are at an all-time regional high, airship use has soared while property values beneath their routes have plummeted, there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, and citizens simply have to point a weapon at a government official to get what they want. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Leckenby's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Euro.

Leckenby is ranked 1st in Emirates and 80,670th in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 39 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
